The key attribute of plastered surfaces is that they be flat and smooth, forming a level base for other materials to be applied to them. An unevenly plastered surface could cause major issues with any area of tiling (bathrooms or kitchens), the painting of the surfaces, the fitting of kitchen units and the accurate fitting of architraves.

The aim of the finest Sunderland plasterers is to get a perfect, polished finish directly from the trowel, and you should expect nothing less. Walls and ceilings that have been plastered by a professional, should never need sanding down. If excessive sanding is taking place, the plastering wasn't done properly in the first place. If you hear the buzz of electric sanding machines, you need to do a thorough quality check.

Sunderland Plastering and Coving

In recent times, a common reason to call in a plasterer is to cover an old artexed ceiling. During the 1970's and 80's, artex was the "in" finish for ceilings in Sunderland, at present that is not so much the case. Most plasterers in Sunderland will gladly plaster over that dated artex ceiling, to make it look more sleek and modern. On the other hand, many plasterers will also apply artex to your ceiling if you are wanting to bring back that 1970's style.

Rendering Sunderland: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes interior) walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is very popular across Europe and is especially prevalent in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish has some fire resistant properties and is water resistant, though it is mostly used for aesthetic purposes. While it is acceptable to paint a rendered wall, a much better solution is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting finish.

Screeding in Sunderland

Screeding Sunderland: Some plasterers in Sunderland also provide a floor screeding service, whereby a new level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is usually put on top of a concrete sub-floor to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface, to be covered with an appropriate floor finish (such as floor boards, carpet, vinyl or tiles) or to encase underfloor heating pipes. An effectively laid screed can considerably increase the life of the whole floor and ensure its finish, durability and quality. Hand mixing screed is only acceptable for smaller areas, otherwise a screed pump should be employed to quickly produce a smooth, even blend of sand and cement and to transport (pump) this fine mix directly to its required location, avoiding the use of paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such.

Sunderland plastering specialists can normally help you with screeding driveways, ceiling replacements, artex patching, coving and cornices, interior rendering and screeding, lime rendering, tyrolean rendering, ceiling crack repairs, skimming over drywall, rapid setting screeds, skimming plasterwork, monocouche rendering, drywall plastering and skimming, repairing holes in walls and ceilings and other plastering work in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear.
